Based in our London Design Office, our CAD/ Design Technicians are an integral part of a busy design team, working closely with Project Managers, Lighting Designers and Project Designers to produce perfectly precise and accurate CAD drawings and design documents using a range of software including AutoCAD and Excel.
This is an opportunity to work on the design of some of the most prime high end residences and superyachts around the world, within a growing team of design professionals.
Technicians get to specialise as part of our Lighting, Marine or Residential teams and can benefit from real industry training that can lead to senior design roles in the company. You will find many individuals throughout Ideaworks who have progressed in this way so if it’s career development you are after, then you have come to the right place.
We pride ourselves on the highest levels of quality and service that we consistently deliver to our clients and this resonates in all aspects of a project design and installation. We want you to have the same exacting standards and attention to detail to produce high quality work which you can take pride in.
You are responsible for ensuring every tiny detail in a drawing, manual or document is accurate, tidy and well presented, and is constantly kept up to date. As you can imagine, we have to keep up with the ever-changing world of technology so our design schemes and solutions can often change throughout the life of a project. One of the main things which enables us to de-risk a project for a client and take complete ownership when it comes to problem solving or identifying any issues is record keeping. Maintaining up to date, detailed and efficient records and drawings, making revisions where needed and producing an ‘as – built’ drawing set upon completion of a project.
We know that sometimes mistakes happen, but with your keen eye for detail we want you to find the mistakes and correct them wherever needed. Count and double-check the numbers and be able to critique and check your work so you can be completely happy when you submit it to your fellow designers.
Drawings and documents can easily get out of hand and overly complicated and so we rely on you to be able to keep things simple, accurate and completed in line with the guidelines and protocols which all of our CAD technicians work towards.
Deadlines can often change and we must continue to work at the pace of the rest of the project. As an important member of the project team, communication and coordination with your colleagues and other departments is key. Whether that is checking amendments to designs and drawings, liaising with logistics and stock departments to ensure equipment is ordered and delivered or ensuring the most up to date drawings are issued and utilised for design meetings.
